ball and washington post correspondent. dana, the president said he'd veto it. what's boehner's strategy here? wh where is he going with this? >> he has to negotiate within his own caucus and it is not at all clear that he had the votes here until he started to sweeten it as you were talking about earlier there. he basically needs to appease the hard right in his caucus and he -- this is why it is so unlikely and i think it's always been unlikely that you get anything resembling a deal until the last minute or past the last minute because these guys will not give in unless they absolutely have to. >> republicans seem like they're in a little bit of disarray right now. the conservative club for growth came out against plan b and this is on "the wall street journal" editorial page. by tuesday afternoon even mr. boehner seemed to be throwing up his hands. either way we get a tax increase without a tangible progression on the spending problem. >> is it why the republicans have this? >> this is a significant test of boehner's ability behind a tax increase which is a difficult thing
